Bollywood is getting bolder as more and more actors are daring to take the plunge and lock lips on screen.
Gone are the days when depicting intimacy was limited to meeting flowers.
While directors don't mind stuffing a suck fest in every film, stars have no qualms going to the next level and follow the 'sex sells' mantra to grab eye balls.
So, let's take a look at some of the most memorable lip-locks that rocked and shocked in 2013...
Ranveer-Deepika in Ram-Leela
If there's one kiss that's perfect enough to take home the award of the hottest kiss - it has to be the passionate kiss between Ranveer and Deepika in their last release, 'Ram Leela'.
Buzz is rife that the onscreen couple is up to something real life too and a look at the never ending kisses the two have showered on each other in the flick and you know that the rumours are not totally false.
Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif in Dhoom 3
Two down, one to go! Wondering what are we talking about? Well, that's Katrina's 'Khan-kiss-count'.
With this super sensuous lip-lock with Amir Khan, Katrina has done the lip work with two out of three big Khans of the industry.
Last year she made SRK break his no-kiss-vow. Would Salman make it a hat trick of Khan-kiss for Katrina?
Aditya Roy Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor in Aashiqui 2
This kiss had the perfect setting for a perfect kiss.
From rain and romance to a much in love good looking couple.
Aditya and Shraddha took the scene to just another level with the kiss.
This also makes the most typical setting for a passionate scene in Bollywood.
Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
It was an awkward pairing; especially knowing the two had been lovers at one point in time.
However, Ranbir and Deepika never let that show on screen and their love story was just perfect until the kiss happened.
But can we call it a kiss really? No, it was a casual brush of lips something that's high on affection and low on passion.
Sushant Singh Rajput and Parineeti Chopra in Shuddh Desi Romance
The film was a kissathon of sorts and the innumerable kisses between the horny couple portrayed by Sushant and Parineeti was loaded more with lust and less with passion.
The two lock lips at the drop of a hat, leaving little to imagination for the audiences.
Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan in Ghanchakkar
It's not always that you get a perfect lip-lock. Things can get down to clumsy and embarrassing too.
Something similar happened, when our serial kisser Emraan Hashmi and Vidya 'Dirty' Balan got down to lock their lips in Ghanchakkar.
However, even the very seasoned serial couldn't save the kissing disaster that the very married Vidya thought she would be able to pull off.
Arjun Rampal and Shruti Hassan in D-Day
This was one of the most romantic kiss of the year.
Ironically, the kiss was between a pair that could never unite, despite the very intimate love making scene that followed next.
Full of pain and pathos, it was shared by a prostitute and a RAW agent.
Ayushmann Khurana and Pooja Salvi in Nautanki Saala
Though the film tanked at the Box Office, but the kiss between Ayushmann and Pooja brought turmoil in Ayushmann's real life as his whife was totally against this 9 second long lip lock.
Imraan Khan and Anushka Sharma in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola
Beside uirky dialogues and a quirkier pink buffalo as the part of the main cast, if there's another thing worth remembering in this dud of a movie, then it has to be the rough and tough kiss between the macho Jaat and fiery Jaatni.
Do you know that it was for this film that Imraan broke his 'no-kiss-vow.'
Randeep Hooda and Saqib Saleem in Bombay Talkies
This kiss will be remembered for quite long in the history of Bollywood.
After all it was Bollywood's first ever gay kiss and hat's off to the two men for pulling off the scene with a master stroke of perfection.
Randeep Hooda and Aditi Rao Hydari in Murder 3
Randeep's kissing encounters didn't end without a romantic kiss in 2013.
The unconventional actor got to take the sensuous legacy of Murder franchisee forward by
